WATCH: Bivol-Smith Jr Presser
This Saturday the man that Eddie Hearn claims is the “best 175-pound fighter in the world,” Dmitry Bivol looks to retain his WBA light heavyweight title against Joe Smith Jr.
The two headline a DAZN card from Verona, New York, as Bivol looks for his fifth successful title defense.
During Wednesday’s press conference, Bivol promised a great fight between the two, while Smith is looking to make his hometown proud.
“This is what every fighter dreams of,” Smith told reporters in New York…”to get a shot at a world title and this is my shot.”
“I am going to bring the belt back home to my home town and share it with my family and celebrate with everyone who helped me get to this point.”
